How Do I Recover a Deleted Figma File?

Accidentally deleting a Figma file can be a frustrating experience. Before you panic, you should know that there are ways to recover deleted Figma files. In this article, we will cover the steps to take when trying to restore a deleted Figma file.

First, try searching for the file in the Trash bin. If you’re lucky, the file will still be in the Trash and can be recovered by simply dragging it back out of the Trash and into your folder.

If the file is not in the Trash, then it is likely that it has been permanently deleted. Don’t worry though – there is still hope!

The first thing to try is to contact Figma’s support team directly. They may be able to help restore your deleted file from their backups.

If contacting Figma doesn’t work, then it may be possible to recover your lost file using third-party software such as Disk Drill or Recuva. These applications can scan your computer for recently deleted files and attempt to recover them automatically. There is no guarantee that these applications will work, but they are worth a shot if all else fails.

Finally, if all else fails, then you can always contact professional data recovery services such as Kroll Ontrack or Gillware Data Recovery Services. These services specialize in recovering lost data and have high success rates of restoring accidentally deleted files.

In conclusion, while losing a Figma file can be stressful, there are steps that can be taken to try and recover it. First try searching for it in the Trash bin or contacting Figma support directly for help restoring from their backups. If those options fail then third-party software such as Disk Drill or Recuva may provide some help in recovering your lost files or professional data recovery services may need to be consulted if all else fails.
